Hi,

what do you mean by "manipulate"? You can set/change some stuff in the repository using the SDKs. For samples look here:

If you have a special need please provide more detailed information about what you are up to do.

Regards,

Harald

Updates to report objects can be done using the RAS SDK. Information on that can be found in the RAS SDK developer guide and APIs from the link that was posted by Prithvi in an earlier post.

You can find some samples that use the RAS SDK by searching in the SCN Advanced Search at the following URL:

http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/scn/advancedsearch

If you are looking for RAS Java Samples, you would seclect Category = "Code Samples", the select Development Language = "Java", then select APIs = "Report Modification APIs", then select SDK = "BusinessObjects Report Application Server SDK". You can then enter any keywords in the Search box to narrow down to more specific samples. For example, you mentioned that you want to "update the formula field in a specific report". So, if you type in "formula" to narrow down the search, you will find samples that deal with forumlas. One useful sample is titled "Java RAS2008-unmanaged addformulafield" and it can be reached at the following link:

I hope that this helps to get you started.

Thanks for replying. What I like to be able through the Java SDK is the following

- Update the custom function or text object stored in the repository that is used by multiple reports.

- Update the formula field in a specific report.

Thanks

There is no SDK functionality that allows you to update any objects that are stored in the repository. You can modify the objects in an individual report.

Hi,

You can do a lot of stuff at administrative level through BOE Java SDKs.

Here in i provide you a link from where you can download APIs and developer guide for SDKs.
